Lot 1605 (The Works of Art, Medals, Militaria & Furniture Auction, 21st January 2021)
Sold for £160
Condition generally good to fair. General surface wear throughout. Water damage to front right of top, also a split towards back left. Split on left hand side. Also splits to backs of both pedestals. Third drawer down on left pedestal somewhat jammed and off runners - upon closer inspection the piece of wood dividing the bottom and second bottom drawer would need attention, though would hopefully fix the issue.
Frieze drawer, and second drawer down on right pedestal have chips to one of the handles.
Each drawer runs relatively smoothly (except second bottom on left pedestal). No key.
